About the property

ATMOSPHERE AND AUTHENTICITY. Wellness in the history

A careful restoration has returned, after years of work of master craftsmen, this unique and authentic ensemble of trulli in part already belonged, in the past centuries, to the Church.


The Trulli complex "Le Chiancarelle" is the result of the union between the passion for the historical recovery and the desire to realize the future guests' wellness.


The pool area is sufficiently separated from the complex of trulli, as well as the annex built at a later date.


At the dependence is a wood-burning oven where you can challenge themselves with the art of pizza.

The garden offers every day something to collect and cook; according with the season: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, zucchini, strawberries, etc.


The group of the original trulli has kept almost intact the old structure and is as follows:

- An environment with "cummersa" roof (typical of the houses of the old town of Locorotondo) now houses a suite.

- A very small trullo upstairs with a queen bed, placed upon an old barn for sheep that today has been transformed into two bathrooms and a laundry room.

- An environment with a great trullo, which now houses a large kitchen with a stone barbecue.

- A room with three characteristic “trulletti” (today is a living room with double sofa bed) where is also the old "focarile", today fireplace.

- A room with arched stone walls and large trullo, with two single beds.


The annex is completely separate, located beyond the pool area, and includes a double room with bathroom, a large wood-burning oven, another kitchen and a terrace surrounded by nature.

We stayed in the Trulli of Fernando at the end of April and beginning of May 2017 and we're very happy.

When we arrived, Fernando had made a light dinner, a big warm welcome for us.

We stayed in touch with Fernando, if we had a question, he answered immediately.

It felt so good staying in the beautiful Trulli of Fernando, it's a very charming house, the garden is great and the swimming pool area is really beautiful.

The environment is very nice, we really liked Locorotondo, Monopoli, Lecce, Alberobello and more cities.

We were with 5 adults and 2 children at the age of 17 and really everyone enjoyed it so much!

Fernando, we're missing it already and will return. Thanks for your hospitality. Ciao!

Owner's Response: Liz and his family & friends are definitely perfect guests. They used my property like their own home. Dear Liz, it was really a pleasure to welcome you in my trulli and I'm happy that you appreciated my house as well as my region. That means I reached my goal. Thanks a lot. Fernando.

A magical property

  • 5 of 5

This is truly (trullo!) a magical property - giving one a glimpse into life in rural Puglia, yet close enough to all the important cities in the Valle D'Itria.

The house is spotless and the grounds and pool are simply gorgeous.

What's more, Fernando is a very charming and generous host with deep knowledge of the area and an eagerness to share it.

We could not have been happier in our trullo and look forward to visiting again.

Mille grazie di tutto Fernando, e ci vediamo l'anno prossimo!

Great experience in 'Historic trulli ensemble with private pool' at Locorotondo

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic place to stay in Puglia : the authentic trulli ensemble with patio, terraces and swimming pool is marvellous and spacious, the location superb, the hospitality so warm ,the property itself beautifully green, clean and well-maintained, and totally private. In reality, it looks even better than on the pictures!

Fernando, our host, welcomed us with a delicious lunch of local food and drink on the patio in front of the main house. He showed us the property first, the spacious trulli and the annex, all very well equipped. Not only kitchen material, but all types of spices, oil, vinegar, products for washing machine and dishwasher,shampoo, plenty of towels and sheets,charcoal for the inside barbecue etc. And... everything worked perfectly.

There were strawberries and lettuce in the vegetable garden, cherries, fresh herbs.He gave us full trust, we could use it all!

At night, the property is beautifully lit, and there is enough parking place.

Fernando was available throughout our 10-day stay, and he answered every whatsapp promptly. His team 'on the spot' was also ready for any help or emergency.

His well-organized personal guide list with useful telephone numbers (tips restaurants, local specialties, supermarkets, farmacy, tips for trips etc.) was very practical .

The location is very central to visit the authentic small towns in the neighbourhood, the seaside is only a half hour drive, and there is much more to be explored in a one hour drive.

We have already recommended this top location to relatives and friends, and will continue recommending it to everybody who is looking for this type of lodging!

Grazie mille, Fernando ! Roos en Luc, and thanks from toddler Luca for installing a toddler's bed and chair!
